I am very excited to be at Carson Junior High School and teach the Computer and Introduction to Engineering courses. I have been teaching 5 different courses at Carson:
- IT20 Intro to Engineering - Automation and Robotics Building and coding numerous projects
- VEX metal robotics
- Lego EV3 robotics
- IT25 Intro to Engineering - Design Modeling (CAD) with 3D printing
- CB02 Computer Essentials - Learning and using Microsoft products (Word, PowerPoint, Excel Spreadsheets) as well as the Google products (Docs, Slides, and Sheets)
- CB09 Computer App Developments - Building and Coding apps for Android phones and tablets.
I am deeply passionate about science and engineering. I have my Bachelors of Arts in Education in science from ASU (May 1989) and my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from NAU (May 1996).
I have taught all the sciences in both Junior High and High School. Since 2009 I have focused my teaching on robotics, electronics, computers, coding and building in the class and in my STEM club (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Both myself and my three children are successful products of the Mesa Public School District. Mesa is such a wonderful place to learn, live and meet new friends. I love the City of Mesa and I am very proud to work in Mesa Public Schools.
Engineering = Science + Math!!
